Ludlow Independent Schools received a $40,000 grant to be used for a STEM initiative (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) from PIE. PIE (Partnership for Innovation in Education) received the funds from the Duke Energy Foundation and decided to utilize the grant to sponsor a STEM program at Ludlow.
PIE Chief Executive Officer, Mary Welsh Schlueter, said, "We are extremely pleased this grant will be used for Kentucky children in Ludlow Independent Schools. The grant will be used to implement the PIE KydPreneur Program that teaches the application of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) concepts in a real world curriculum. Kids have a chance to apply what they are learning, from both a regional and global perspective. Our 21st century curriculum prepares children by teaching skills a future career might demand." Funds will be used to purchase technology items and curriculum materials for this project.
